Hidden in the hills of Hateg county, Prislop monastery is one of the dearest places to Romanians. It is usually crowded as people come for pilgrimage to prey at the grave of Arsenie Boca who was a huge personality of the Romanian Orthodox Church. He was also an artist who painted parts of the walls of the church of Prislop monastery and other two churches in Romania (Eroilor church in Bucharest and the church in Draganescu village in Giurgiu county, nearby Bucharest). Arsenie Boca designed the plans to rebuild the garden of Prislop and coordinated the related works. He also designed and built the spire in the garden which is amazingly integrated in the natural landscape of the garden.

A Muntenian style church built in Transylvania. Due to the fame of Arsenie Boca, it turned into a destination for pilgrims. The monastery and the area are superb. Kind of crowded, but you can sit back and recharge your energy.

Was looking for a peaceful and quiet place. Instead, we found it crowded and noisy, lots of people not coping with the Covid-19 regulations. Nowhere to buy water from, only 3 small shops with souvenirs, also very crowded, people going inside without waiting for others to come out. A bit disappointed, not what we were expecting from a sacred place. The area, the view and the church are worth the trip. Maybe you are lucky and visit it when it’s not crowded, during the week would be advisable.

the monastery is well know for maybe the most important monk from the after WW2 period, who lived here for a while but besides that, the place is very beautiful, the landscapes are so nice, protecting the old or new constructions of the monastery of course, the place is also crowded, due to the pilgrims who visit the grave of the mentioned monk, but this is not the only reason to visit the place the parking place is quite big, a sign of the crowded place you could meet inside toilet to the entrance
